The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) has deferred the expected date of issue for the new Hypertension Guideline to June 2006.
The following comment was posted on the 2nd May in the section detailing the project history:
"The timeline for the review of this guideline has been extended. The Guideline Development Group needed more time to consider the stakeholder comments received during consultation on the first draft guideline carried out in February. The final guideline is now expected to be published in June."
Action: The delay is disappointing however clinicians should not be tempted to change practice until the new Guideline is published.
